This is a review for "A GOOD OL' FASHION FIGHT" starring Roydon Clark . . .
. . . but it has to appear here because John Wayne's Batjac people somehow prevent IMDb from having pages for any of their DVD "bonus material" (perhaps they feel that Mr. Wayne is not as important as Looney Tunes characters, for instance, on behalf of whom Warner Bros.--one of Mr. Wayne's early collaborators--meticulously includes a separate IMDb page for EVERY "Featurette"--no matter how brief).
"You're only as good as the individual you're fighting . . . "
" . . . and that meant that no matter how good a punch I threw, if the person I was throwing the punch at didn't react or take the punch well, the punch really meant nothing," stunt coordinator Roydon Clark opines about John Wayne in general and McLINTOCK in particular. Mr. Clark's connection with this feature film is never made very clear in this DVD "extra" for the 2005 home market release of McLINTOCK, but his point applies to what passes for Real Life, as well. Take the second heavyweight title boxing match between Cassius Clay and Sonny Liston. Mr. Liston was so bad at taking a punch (or "dive," as they say in the ring game) that Mr. Clay had to change his name to escape the notoriety and uproar over that "fixed" fight. Something similar happened on TV this fall, only with a woman doing a Pay-Per-View broadcast. Apparently the ramifications over this latest incident got so ugly that a name change along the lines of Mr. Clay's would be insufficient to address them, and the individual involved is changing venues, forming a musical group tentatively dubbed "Rousted with the Rhonettes." Hopefully, Boxing and the MMA people will hire some stunt coordinators soon.
